🌿🌿🌿 Greenery Wedding Centerpiece | Recipe + Instructions 🌿🌿🌿
How to make this simple bud vase wedding centerpiece
For the centerpieces, I chose 3 vintage vases of different shapes and sizes. This is one of the easiest DIY centerpieces! Mix and match the greens in different size and different quantities per bud vase. I also laid out 1 stem of Italian ruscus greenery on top of the wood slab, in between the bud vases. The centerpiece comes in under $20! With 3 stems of leather leaf fern, 3 stems of olive branch, 2 stems of baby blue eucalyptus and 1 stem of Italian ruscus.
🌿🌿🌿 Greenery Wedding Bouquet | Recipe + Instructions 🌿🌿🌿
How to make this greenery wedding bouquet
For the bouquet, I started with 3 stems of leather leaf fern, 1 stem of olive branch and 1 stem of baby blue eucalyptus. I crossed their stems for a more loose, organic feel and then loosely zip tied the stems. You want to leave space in the zip tie to slide more stems in. After this I filled in with the other greenery to give it a relaxed, asymmetrical feel. You don’t want to tighten the zip tie as this will bring all the stems close together and it will lose its wide shape. After you’ve added all the greenery. Give the stems all a fresh cut so they are the same length and then tie with ribbon covering the zip tie.
Purchasing 1 bunch of each of these greens will be enough to make a bridal bouquet, a scattered bud vase centerpiece, and up to 12 boutonnieres!
For the boutonnieres, choose 2 greens and cut them down to about 5 inches (including the stem). Then secure the stems with floral tape and cover it with a gold ribbon to match the theme!
